...the one in which GP explains why you can stick a fork in E3.
Catch it only on Joystiq...
I'm all for freedom of ttnet vitamin speech and allowing rent a car game makers to put whatever they want in games, but there's one thing about this app that has me scratching my head. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from araç kiralama the previous article araba kiralama on this I gathered that players can use Google maps in-game to find the other (real-life?) dealers in their area. If this is the case, has travesti anyone considered what's stopping someone from using this app to actually move drugs between hands for reals?
But majority araba kiralama of their outrage araç kiralama stems from what it could DO TO children, not the content itself. Talk to one of these people and you'll find they don't think any books kiralık araba should be banned from children. Mention American Psycho and they talk about kiralık araç the redeeming value of using imagination to construct a story. Reading, no matter what the content, is largely viewed as a consequenceless activity for people of any age. The reason why I mention American Psycho is because of the content itself. Gaming never has and likely never will have any scenes where someone has sex with a severed head. Not gonna happen. Yet despite this, they'll fight tooth and nail to protect their children from two boys kissing in Bully but whatever they read is harmless... yeah.
The entire arguement is kiralık oto based upon a social normality inflicted by luddites who can't figure out the controls for Halo so it's frightening and terrifying and obviously the cause of youth violence on the rise even though, in reality, it's in decline (which is actually a HUGE suprise given minibüs kiralama the economies status). In a perfect world, we would have parents that actually parent. The idea of sales restrictions on media on oto kiralama any form to accomidate parental unwillingness to get involved with their child's life is the real problem to me. Here I am, 32 years old, and being held up at a self-scan rent a car needing to show ID before I can buy a $10 M rated game all because Soccer Momthra can't be bothered to look at the crap Billy Genericallystupidson does in his free time. It's too hard for her, so I have to suffer?
IF they don't bring back E3, the ESA is doomed.
They've been losing their publishers, so they should attempt to convince the publishers to hold the OLD E3.
I've been saying that since.. last... year. =/
"Eventually the lack of revenue, be it from E3 or membership dues, translates to cutting back on the services that the ESA provides to the industry: lobbying, IP protection and free speech issues."
Would this lead to the eventual collapse of the ESA?
If it does happen, how will it effect the videogame industry? Would it have another crash? Would bills get passed into law and stay?
What would happen?

Consumer responsibility is just as important as Corporate responsibility. So, be responsible consumers.
Laws won't get passed. There will still be the EMA representing the retailers and the ECA representing the consumers. Most game bills effect these two organizations more than they did the ESA anyway.
THe only major problem would be that the publishers won't have a collective voice anymore.

The major publishers could also attempt to fight legislation on their own.
At the very least, it's not the ONLY show in town. =)
Regardless, E3's fall from grace is such a pity.
